Dog chews up carpet


I have a young puppy that loves to pull up my carpet.
What he is doing is pulling up the carpet where it meets the tile floor in the entry way then chews on it and the pad,
The first time he did it I was able to cut out the part he chewed and re stretch the carpet, Well he did it again and I need to patch the carpet this time which I can do but I don't think I can stretch it any more.
My question is there anyway I can use a T molding to put down where the carpet meets the tile? I just don't know how I would get the T molding to stay in place and there isn't much room with the tack strip to even put the molding in.
I am thinking if I can cover the end of the carpet where it meets the tile the dog wouldn't be able to get a hold on the edge of the carpet and pull it up.
And don't tell me to do away with the dog, It's my wife's dog, And I am sure that would never happen. So I just need to get the dog to listen to me, She is just a puppy and I think that she will grow out of this chewing.

Spray it with Ropel. This stuff is extremely bitter. Pups will get one taste and that will be the end of it.

First thing to do is train your dog.Then you won't have to worry about it.The best time to train a dog is when they are pups.You can spray whatever you want with Ropel.It still does not teach the dog good behavior.
